False accusations are one of the cases that a dental attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied over the Board once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, a dentist in San Antonio failed to do so.
During the time period from February 3, 2014, to February 9, 2015, the dentist’s practice overcharged four patients who were treated by a different dentist at her practice. Specifically, the dentist’s practice overcharged the following patients:
- patient 1 for restoration on tooth letter T, which did not show any decay, and does not appear to have been treated in subsequent radiographs;
- patient 2 for extraction of tooth letter H without adequate radiographic justification;
- patient 4 for extractions of tooth letters I and S, which were nearing natural exfoliation; and
- patient 5 for extraction of tooth letter L without clinical or radiographic justification, restorations on tooth letters T and K, despite evidence that they would naturally exfoliate soon, failure to fill a pulp chamber during a pulpotomy on tooth letter K, and restoration of tooth letter without clinical or radiographic justification.
Subsequently, the dentist fell below the minimum standard of care by failing to make, maintain, and keep adequate dental records on the four patients. The dentist’s records do not include accurate identification of the provider dentist, and confirmable Identification of person making record entries if different from provider dentist; or an explanation of why these items are not recorded.
Specifically, the dental records for the four patients mistakenly identify the dentist as the treating dentist.
As a defense to the complaints filed against her, the dentist denied everything and states that she did everything she could in the scope of her dental practice to do the best treatment for the patient.
Therefore, the Board decided to summon the dentist for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a reliable dental attorney should be hired.
False accusations may compromise your career, which is why a Texas dental attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a dental attorney to provide further defense against your case.
Because the dentist failed to provide a dental attorney to defend her case, the Board then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the dentist and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a dental attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Dental Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
